Japanese vs English Translation issues?

Postby Kitphiroth » Sat Feb 16, 2019 9:46 am

Someone recently told me that Suikoden 3s Japanese version is so different than the English one. Is there a list of character developmental differences? Does someone know?

I mean it's impossible to point out all the problems with Suikoden III's translation as it's very much a hack job, but I wouldn't say it's markedly different from the Japanese version in character development that I can remember?

Obviously there are bits like when Hugo gets all giddy about hearing about Order and Chaos in Luc's dead world scenario or when Sasarai greets Luc like they're old friends, but it's just down to translators not understanding the context.

But that happens when you have an apathetic Konami outsourcing the translation to the lowest bidder.
